Street Children in the Philippines

CSC Projects Supporting Street Children in the Philippines

CSC has been partnering with organisations supporting street children in the Philippines since 2017. Children in street situations in the Philippines have been particularly vulnerable to the administration’s campaign on illegal drugs which is reflected in its approach that seeks to control and remove children. In the ‘war on drugs’ street children have fallen victim to extrajudicial killings, arbitrary detention, persecution and violence, and violations of their rights. Street children have also been seriously affected by the lowering of the minimum age at which a child can be held criminally responsible. See below for our long-term work with our partners in the Philippines.

Our Projects in the Philippines

Keeping Street-Connected Children Safe

This project funds innovative direct-service delivery projects for street children across Asia and South America. Red Nose Day US also funds our global ‘4 Steps to Equality’ campaign, our ‘Digitally Connecting Street Children’ project with partners across the world, and our pioneering work in Uruguay, helping the government to adopt the General Comment No. 21 on Street Children.

The Legal Atlas: Putting Street Children on the Map

Street children are one of the world’s most invisible populations, overlooked by governments, law and policymakers and many others in society. To address this, CSC and our partner Baker McKenzie created the Legal Atlas, to put information about laws affecting street children directly into their -and their advocates’ – hands.
